My name is Ms. Ponder and this is my ninth year as art teacher at South Laurel Middle School. I spent nearly a decade working as a graphic designer in the print and newspaper industries prior to pursuing teaching as a career. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Education with an emphasis in graphic design from Morehead State University. I live in London with my seven-year-old son.  I love being an art teacher at S.L.M.S. and sharing a passion for art with young people. It is an incredible reward to see them grow as confident artists!


Welcome students!
This year I have many fun activities planned for both 6th and 8th grade art classes. Please bookmark this page as all course information, updates, and assignments are posted regularly.

WHY ART?

The facts are that arts education…

  • Strengthens student problem-solving and critical thinking skills, adding to overall academic achievement and school success.
  • Helps students develop a sense of craftsmanship, quality task performance, and goal-setting – skills needed to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
  • Can help troubled youth, providing an alternative to destructive behavior and another way for students to approach learning.
  • Helps all students develop more appreciation and understanding of the world around them.
  • Helps students develop a positive work ethic and pride in a job well done.
